Healthy Banana Pudding

Ashley Staudenmaier


I was given a banana pudding recipe that was super high in calories and fat. I'm very health conscious and tinkered to get this.

***I have light soy milk listed. It has 60 calories per cup. If you don't like soy or have any on hand, use skim.***

Each serving has 200 calories.

How to Make Healthy Banana Pudding


  1. Simmer milk, 1 T flour and seeds from vanilla beans and the vanilla beans themselves for 15 minutes. Take vanilla beans out.
  2. Whisk yolks, 1 T flour and splenda together. Slowly adding simmered milk. If you add too fast you get scrambled eggs.
  3. Once egg mixture is tempered, put back on a simmer until thick. Add extract. Mix well.

    While waiting on mixture to thicken, slice bananas. Coat with lemon juice.
  4. Begin layering. Custard, bananas, cookies and repeat.
